A Session Presented by Our Elite Underwriter, HP | Intel: AI to Intelligence Augmentation in Human Performance and Training

Brianna Havlik, Head of XR Software, HP

Dr. Rafael ‘Tico’ Ballagas, Senior Manager of Omnicept AI, HP Labs, HP

George Jackson, Director of Events, Government Executive Media Group

Description

We are in the early stages of a paradigm shift towards human brain and computer interaction.   This shift will enable a new class of experiences that can adapt to a user’s state-of-mind.  HP is working on interesting projects where machine learning is leveraged to make sense of a suite of physiological sensors built into a VR headset all to measure autonomic nervous system responses.  These advances can be used to improve training, transform education, and optimize human performance of a task.  Join Tico Ballagas and Brianna Havlik from HP as they discuss the challenges associated with developing AI inference engines especially with an emphasis on privacy, science, and transparency, while minimizing data bias and security risks.

Combating Deepfakes

Dr. Xiaoming Liu, Foundation Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Michigan State University

Dr. Matthew Turek, Acting Deputy Director, Information Innovation Office, DARPA

Patrick Tucker, Technology Editor, Defense One

Description

Deepfakes, computer-generated images and footage of real people, pose a serious threat to national  security. Creating these images and footage has become a key tactic among adversary groups as it has become easier to gain access to deepfaking tools. During this panel session, Defense One will explore how defense and intelligence agencies, as well as academics, are combating them.
